A graduate student conference
17 March, 2008
Queen's College, Cambridge
This conference aims to push the boundaries of current thought on how issues of governing, statehood and citizenship were constructed through the course of time. What concepts of the political order developed but did not persist? Which became dominant and why? The conference thus invites papers from any discipline that address ways of experiencing and/or conceptions of the political order, state power and the limits thereof, authority, law, state-citizen relations, colonialism, commerce, and empire.
The aim of the conference is to achieve a broad, rich, and multi-faceted picture of what it meant to think about the political order at different moments during the four formative centuries between 1500-1900.
We seek papers of 25 minutes in length, and work in progress is particularly welcome. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with abstracts of 200-300 words and your contact details, or with any questions you may have. Some funding may be available for travel and other expenses.
